Experience the haunting beauty of Namibia’s Skeleton Coast on this unique four day safari. Traveling by light aircraft and hosted by the renowned Schoeman Family this once-in-a-lifetime journey allows you a bird’s-eye view of some of the most spectacular landscapes on earth.
Departing from Windhoek you will experience the Skeleton Coast via Conception Bay from the air, offering spectacular aerial views of the famous Eduard Bohlen shipwreck, found at Conception Bay.
After a quick stop to refuel at Swakopmund, experience a low-level flight to the north past the Cape Cross seal colony and stopping for a light picnic lunch near the beach.
Next you will fly across the vast desert to marvel at the Ugab Formations, a lifeless 'moon landscape' of black ridges in stark contrast to the white desert floor.
You will overnight at Kuidas Camp in the Huab River Valley.
Discover the truly fascinating ecological aspects of the Huab River area with the colourful red lava and yellow sandstone, with the Welwitschia Mirabilis being a highlight.
After a short break for lunch you can enjoy a scenic flight along the coast, taking in the haunting remains of shipwrecks, to Terrace Bay situated in the Skeleton Coast Park.
Explore the beach and dunes by Landrover and gaze in amazement at the profusion of multi-coloured pebbles consisting of quartz, granite, lava and agate and see if you can spot any whales bones, bleached over time.
From here you fly north to Purros camp in the Hoarusib Valley where you will overnight.
Today you will embark on a scenic drive through the Hoarusib Valley and visit the settlement of the nomadic Himba people. Be sure to look out for the famous desert-dwelling elephants that are frequently found in this valley.
Continue north along the Skeleton Coast by air to the Kunene River, which acts as a border to Angola. Pieces from old sailing vessels lie scattered along this part of the coast, including the Kaiu Maru shipwreck.
From the airfield we take a scenic drive by Land Rover to our favourite lunch site. After lunch we continue through the mountains and dunes of the Hartmann Valley - which extends to the Kunene River - reaching our Kunene River camp in the late afternoon.
An early morning boat trip on the Kunene River as it flows through scenic desert landscape, observing bird life and possibly some crocodiles. Birds vary from aquatic species on the perennial waters, to endemic desert varieties and those that inhabit dense riverine vegetation.
After lunch at the camp, we fly back to Eros Airport, Windhoek, arriving in the late afternoon.
